I have worked successfully for a client with this project.

But he remained me bad feedback. At that moment he said to me he is ok with my result.

What is more important is that he needed for me to work outside this platform. He is really scammer.

How can I remove this feedback? I am not top rated freelancer.

Hope a good help.

I am a programmer looking for freelance work and came across UpWork. I feel like it is a well known site but wanted to hear if anyone has had good/bad experience with them. Or if there are better alternatives.

I'm hesitant to use them because they require image of my drivers license and then to get paid i need to give them SS numbers for W-9 form. Is this safe?

Another question that popped into my head is "company name". Lots of forms/contracts want you to have a company name. Can you just come up with one or is there some legal paperwork you need to fill out?

Hi Oelim,


The W-8BEN form have a purpose to confirm you're not a US taxpayer and if you don't have a registered company you can use your own legal name as it appears in your passport or other official documents.


To protect your personal information, access to the information you submit to Upwork to verify your identity is stored by Upwork, per our security policy. Upwork agents comply with our privacy policy and the third-party vendor that handles these requests does not store any identification data. We do not sell any of the information you submit to us. After 30 days, the image you submit to verify your identity is deleted.


Thank you.

Since Last week I did not get any invitation.  But before that, I got a continuous invitation and suddenly, I don't know what happened? can anyone tell me the exact reason?
